*Ticket titles are just for a fun poll, all named tickets are the same.
It’s time to look at the big picture. Kelli Anderson will share her design process from beginning to end, starting with a quick presentation of a single project and then jumping back to the first client meeting, breaking down every step of the design and development. This is not a technical how-to, it's an exploration of the winding road that is bringing a project from concept to full realization.
Come ready to take notes, and save some room for dessert — we’re cooking up a sweet surprise to close out the series (included in the price of the ticket).*
*All ticket sales are being donated to a local charity, which means you'll be meeting rad designers, having a nice snack, and helping the local community in one fell swoop.
About Kelli Anderson
Kelli Anderson is an artist, designer, and tinkerer who is obsessed with the mechanics of visual things. In her work, she tries to find surprising possibilities for ordinary experiences. In 2008, she worked with the Yes Men to create and distribute a meticulously recreated copy of The New York Times—filled with articles from a progressive Utopian future—for which they won the Ars Electronica Prix Award of Distinction. In 2011, she created a paper record player wedding invitation that garnered major attention—online and off—and gave a popular Tedx talk on the subject. In 2012, she designed and art-directed a newspaper that was on view as part of Martha Rosler’s Meta-Monumental Garage Sale at the Museum of Modern Art. Her work has been profiled or featured in print or on air by NPR, Wired UK, New York Magazine, Gestalten, Rockport Publishing, Laurence King Publishing, iDN, How Design Magazine, Uppercase Magazine, and Victionary and has had work on display at ApexArt, Jen Bekman Gallery, the New York Public Library, and MoMA. Her first book, a conceptual pop-up book, will be released by Chronicle in 2015.
